We believe strongly in 5 core values for our clients, as well as our approach to life.

Here is our why and where everything begins and ends.
 

 

Courage

Standing in your truth of who you are and want to become is a beautiful thing. It is an act of courage to evolve freely and fully. Deciding that you won't deny your true feeling so you can live authentically in the light...this is bravery. I am in awe of those that won't be contained by society's ideals. I love the power and emotion in this. Putting it all out there for the world to see is a brave thing to do. To let the camera capture the emotions you're feeling in that moment is an amazing thing.

 

 

confidence

Believe in your inner passion so it may shine through.
Know that you are enough and unique in the best kind of way.
The special parts of you are what make you intriguing.

 

 

diversity

You are unique and we want to celebrate what makes you different. We cater to all hair textures and skin tones so everyone can enjoy the process. Every color that makes up the rainbow of beauty is embraced and revered here.

 

 

equality

Everyone is treated with the same respect...all are more. No one is less. Every client is equal. We celebrate the variety in how your image is seen, shown, and felt.
 

 

 

individuality

You are unique. You are enough. We want to showcase what makes you a one of a kind and capture it for the world to see

 
 
 

Oh yeah, about me....

Hey lady, I'm Erica! I've always pulled to doing hair and the beauty industry, even as a kid. After graduating high school I started hair school and just followed the path from there. Got licensed as a cosmetologist, became a cosmetology instructor, built my own clientele and eventually began my own business. I've always enjoyed doing hair and talking with people. I'm a people person so doing something that makes women feel good about themselves became the best kind of side effect.

I am a vocal proponent of marriage equality, inner beauty, and not getting lost in society's ideals of what is beautiful. I believe in setting your own standard of beauty and being the most amazing and authentic version of yourself. Inside and out. After all, beauty starts from the inside right?

My wife and I decided to try Silver Immersion not only for their amazing portfolio, but also for their open support of the LGBT community. We were pretty early in our wedding planning and we were as indecisive as anyone could probably imagine, so please believe me when I say that Erica makes magic. She can take 1/18th of any idea that you have and make it everything you want. She made sure that we were happy and comfortable and she was a pretty great spirit to talk to. We only used Silver Immersion for hair, but they have air brush and traditional options for makeup as well. Their work is amazing and the pictures really speak for themselves.

In addition to being able to swoop in to our rescue at the very last minute (THANK YOU!) when another vendor wasn’t able to accommodate my procrastinator wedding party, Christine and Amanda made us all look GORGEOUS! So gorgeous, in fact, that they managed to squeeze in even one MORE last minute makeup service! We all looked amazing all day—I kept staring at myself in the mirror, looking at the most beautiful version of myself I had ever seen :P I was especially pleased with how they did my mom’s hair and makeup—Christine and Amanda did a great job making my ladies and I into beauty queens, while still keeping a light touch with my mom, who prefers a low-key look. Everyone’s hair and makeup lasted all day, including the blowouts (how is this even possible?). I can absolutely recommend these ladies!!
